Director's Message

August 14, 2017

The recent events in Charlottesville have been disturbing and distressing to many in our community.  Our hearts go out to the loved ones of the woman who was killed and the police officers who lost their lives in a helicopter crash as well as those who were injured.

Fascism, Nazi salutes and flags, white supremacy and hatred of Jewish people, racial minorities, LGBTQ people and immigrants were blatant in these protests in the name of saving monuments, but were indeed in the service of hatred.

The Counseling Center deplores and strongly opposes hatred, bigotry, racism, violence and terrorism which are incompatible with the ideals of our mental health professions.  We support inclusion, diverity, multiculturalism and social justice.  

We strive to provide a place where emotional and complex issues can be discussed in a non-judgemental and empathic environment.

 
                                       "I swore never to be silent                                                            whenever and wherever human beings endure                                                                 suffering and humiliation.                                                We must always take sides.  Neutrality helps the oppressor.           Never the victim"

(Elie Wiesel) 


Students who are distressed by this unfortunate and regrettable controversy are invited to come to The Counseling Center to discuss their feelings about these events.

We will helpe each other get through these difficult times.
